If you couldn’t work it out from the title… I’m talking about periods. Or, as I like to refer to it, “The wonderful gushing confirmation of a non-violated uterus. Baby not on board!”
This ad has been on TV a lot lately, and it has been bugging the heck out of me.
Kotex, the wonderful company that they are, decided to do some research into periods. Apparently, 72% of us wear our daggy undies when we have our period, which seems to be the singular most important finding they made.
Kotex seem to believe this is because we are scared of our pads leaking or some such thing. Can’t be ruining your good underpants now!
Well, I don’t actually know about the rest of the menstruating community… but pad leakage is one of the furthest things from my mind when I choose my knickers in the morning.
I’m thinking about more important things. Like the fact I have bloated to the size of a small car. Or the fact I just don’t want lace anywhere near my nether regions. Or the fact that my big, baggy undies are the most comfortable things in the universe.
So, make your pads as leak proof as you like. That’s pretty awesome. But I am still going to be wearing my daggy undies, regardless.
Please inform me – is this just me? Really?
